    Stellar Read

    An epic finale to The Lost Castle series that cinches it for a top ten spot on my reading list this year. The sheer beauty of the storytelling makes you fall in love with all three of the split time storylines. The words flow like a gentle river changing course effortlessly and snowballing into a spectacular ending. I found myself thirsting for more and couldn’t put it down. I needed tissues at times and found myself smiling at others. Keira, Amelia, and Elizabeth are all strong women from different eras that are struggling to find their way after loss and devastation in their lives. Healing comes to each in its own way. My favorite quote that sums the totality of the book is, “Don’t be afraid. It’s never about the end of a road, is it? ...... This one will leave you astounded and wishing it didn’t have to end. Highly recommended. I received a complimentary copy from CelebrateLit/publisher. The honest review and opinions are my own and were not required.

    A fabulous story!

    ‘What lasts isn’t what we build on our own, but the stories He builds within and around us.’ What a wonderful conclusion to a series that I wish would continue on. The incredible descriptive detail that the author brings us makes one feel that you are right there in that castle with the easy to love characters. 1833 introduces us to young Elizabeth upon the murder of her father. Those eyes become a focal point in her life. Pathan Hill Estate has many stories to tell through 1843, 1944 and on to the present day. The surroundings, the town, the beekeeper’s cottage - I felt like I could travel to England right now and everything would be just as I read in this fabulous story! With art theft, beekeeping, murder, mystery and romance, you will find this book very hard to put down before you have reached the end.....and then you will wish there was more! I highly recommend this series, which certainly can be enjoyed in any order, but will be more easily understood if you start at the beginning. An ARC of this book was received through Thomas Nelson, HarperCollins Christian Publishing, NetGalley and. CelebrateLit. The comments, impressions and 5 star rating are my own and were in no way solicited.

    Wonderful!

    "Don't be afraid. It's never about the end of the road, is it? It's about living and loving in the journey we take to get where we are. Right now. Right to this very moment." Three time periods and three different women, each with their own distinct story, but all connected because of one location. Author Kristy Cambron has created a wonderful tale centered around Parham Hill Estate in England and she sets the stories in 1843, in 1944, and finally, in the present day. Each woman is very special and unique: in Victorian England Elizabeth Meade needed to solve her father's murder and Amelia Woods was dismayed that World War II soldiers had taken up residence at Parham Hill. She had created a haven there for the children affected by the war and the American soldiers were a daily reminder of how their lives had been changed by the fighting. In the present-day Keira Foley becomes involved with a painting that has played a role in the other two stories and she must prove her ability to recognize true art versus reproduction as she evaluates this painting at the manor. Three different women whose stories are connected by an English estate, a cottage, a library, and a painting of Queen Victoria. There are so many emotions woven into The Painted Castle: defeat, sadness, triumph, and exhilarating happiness. We are given glimpses of three beautiful romances but most of all, we receive the ultimate message of love. We are reminded of the need for forgiveness and redemption and that we can all achieve it through Jesus Christ. Cambron possesses an unique talent in writing time-split novels and I never felt lost or confused about which story I was reading. She drew me in, she made me a part of their lives, and she made me sorry when I had to say goodbye. In the author's notes there are some of the historical facts that added so much reality and I highly recommend The Painted Castle to all who enjoy historical fiction and Christian romance. I received a copy of this book through Celebrate Lit and Thomas Nelson via NetGalley. This review is voluntary and these thoughts are my own.

    Great finish to a great historical romance series

    The Painted Castle is the third and final book in the Lost Castle series by Kristy Cambron. Such good reads--all three! But I think this is my favorite. Castles, heroines, art, mysteries to solve and, of course, romance. I enjoy historical romance and with this time-slip novel set in three different eras, (Victorian, WWII, and contemporary) there is a lot of 'historical' going on! One tidbit of history I found to be quite interesting has to do with a curious monkey and a man with a yellow hat and the authors who brought them to life. The author has a masterful way with words that puts the reader right into the scenes--she knows how to bring the story and her characters to life. The characters are realistic and their actions and emotions are reasonable and relatable. I especially liked the WWII story--the hero was quite the hero--I so wanted Amelia to move beyond her past and connect with him. I liked how the tie-in between the three stories is revealed layer by layer throughout the book and also the great cliff-hangers between the various sections of the stories. The Painted Castle is, as the title suggests, a story about a castle but it is so much more. There is courage, compassion, grief, and the message of faith in the ever-present God who is working in our lives to build stories that become our legacy to those who come after us. This is a book for readers who love historical romance. I am looking forward to reading more from this author. I received a complimentary copy of the book through CelebrateLit. A favorable review was not required and the opinions are my own. This review is part of a CelebrateLit blog tour.
